Hasta Nakshatra in Astrology | Health, Financial & Relationship Prediction

The Moon in Astrology owns Hasta Nakshatra. Moon signifies water and vegetation. If it rains during Hasta Nakshatra, i.e. during this period, then the crops would be good. Hasta nakshatra in astrology is one of the Tiryaka Mukhi Nakshatras (or the Nakshatras, which have their mouths curved). In these nakshatras, things related to roads, dams, the expansion of metals, chariots, boats, etc., can be auspiciously begun and performed.

Characteristics of Hasta Nakshatra in Astrology

  • The animal of this nakshatra is a female buffalo.
  • They are part of a Bovidae family, which includes bison, caribou, antelope and water buffalo.
  • They have thick, large horns joining in the middle of their head.
  • Just like a bull they, too, are extremely powerful and can weigh a ton.
  • They love being in water and this is especially true for water buffalo found in India.
  • Buffalo is also known as the ride of lord Yama.
  • Just like other families of Bovidae they eat only grass and bushes and are mainly used in India to push carts and farming activities.
  • At one point in life Hasta natives will become either vegan or vegetarians, and due to the nature of water buffalo they love taking long showers and to be in the bathtub.
  • Hasta natives like to live near an ocean or a river because they need a body of water they can step in, like a water buffalo.
  • The symbol of this nakshatra is hand or closed fists, which symbolically can have many meanings.
  • In my research I have seen many Hasta natives have talent for painting, sculpting, crafting, sowing, but the most important part I saw is that they have to keep their hands busy like restless hand syndrome.
  • They must do something, whether it’s fixing something, writing, or if there is nothing to do then they’ll be on their cell phone.
  • When there is nothing important to do they love playing cards, poker, gambling that requires the magic of the hands like throwing the dice and why not these are the blessed hands of Savitur, which you will learn in the next paragraph.
  • Such people love to play the hands of luck. Even traditional Indian girls and women have a passion for stock market and gambling.
  • Such people love to perform magic tricks with hands, become pick-pockets and at least one time in their life they may steal from their parent’s wallet or siblings since Moon is debilitated in the 3rd house from Virgo.
  • The hands are also useful in fighting and these folks know how to use their hands to knock someone out.
  • Just because this nakshatra occurs in a feminine sign of Virgo doesn’t mean Hasta folks have to be just as feminine.
  • Virgo may be a feminine sign over all but feminine energy is fierce and ferocious just like how masculine energy is firy.
  • Savitur is one of the 12 Adityas, the sun gods, who is the giver of life, and assists with childbirth.
Hasta Nakshatra in Astrology.
  • He is depicted with golden hands and is considered to provide what we desire in our hands.
  • He is also the god of vitality, life and light, and that of divine inspiration.
  • Savitur has an elder sister, Usha - the dawn, who paves the way for Savitur to walk.
  • Savitur is invoked in the famous Gayatri mantra.
  • The 24-syllable mantra from Rig Veda, is very esoteric, and is supposed to contain the deepest secrets of the universe within it.
  • Hastinapur was the capital city of the Kuru clan in Mahabharata.
  • The great Mahabharata war was fought between five pandavas and their cousins, the Kauravas.
  • Savitur is known to guard the world of spirits and occult.
Goddess Savitri in Hasta Nakshatra in Astrology.
  • He’s known to increase the life of humans and Gods.
  • He is known to have a pleasant tongue, versatile speaker and was called Iron-Jaw.
  • Savitur is simply invoked by reciting the Gaytari mantra, which was given to king turned sage, Vishwamitra.
  • If you read the hymns of this mantra you will see the line “Tat, Savitur, Varenyam”.
  • In translation Savitur means bright as the Sun. Birth of children is also controlled by Savitur, who was blessed to give life in this Universe.
  • Savitur is also known for being the setting sun, the one who gets sacrificed.
  • In Rig Veda he is known to bring all two footed and four-footed beings to home or rest (death) and to awaken them (giving life).
  • This perhaps why it is known as the Widow Make

Attributes of Hasta Nakshatra in Astrology

  • Spread from 10'00" to 23'20" Kanya. The 12 names of the sun are: (1) Arun, (2) Aditya, (3) Tapan, (4) Divakar, (5) Bhaskar, (6) Bhanu, (7) Martanda, (8) Mihir, (9) Ravi, (10) Bivakar, (11) Sahasramsu and (12) Surya.
  • This star causes all the attributes these names etymologically connote. From the Surya, we derive creativity and creation, and from creation, we derive light, luster, and strength.
  • Surya is the prime cause of dominion, kingship, power of immunity, and the light that dispels darkness.
  • Budha is the cause of knowledge. If placed in this star, he sheds light all around. Ravi, with this Nakshatra, enhances the instinct of dominion and the capacity to rule over others. It brushes up human intelligence, making it more luminous and makes a man vibrant with life and light.
  • The symbol is a closed hand or fist. It would follow that this signifies determination and clenched resolution. To keep everybody within one's grip, the possessive instinct follows from the nature of this star. The magician and the pick-pocket are also born under this star - variation from nobler attributes.
